Left: Mark examining a large kunzite crystal he has just removed from the pocket in the Oceanview Mine--it's still covered with pocket mud.

Mark joined the Oceanview team in 2003, at the same time as his business partner, Steve Carter. Mark has been interested in gems and minerals for many years.

Mark's primary role at the mine is as a Bobcat operator, cleaning out the muck created when we blast.
